HUGGY WUGGY INTERNET SAFETY
It has been brought to my attention that a character named " Huggy Wuggy" is being viewed online by some children as young as EYFS. The character can be easily viewed on Youtube channels and is a teddy bear with razor sharp teeth that sings worrying songs about hugging and killing. On one of the videos the bear asks the viewer to take their last breath. It is a very deceiving character as hugs should be seen as something kind and loving and, because of its name , it is able to inflitrate firewalls and filters. I wanted to inform parents so that you are aware and can be vigilant around what your children could be watching. I have attached a link to further information.
